  Title Heterozygous beta-thalassemia: Clinical review and case reports
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1979 Jun;2(2):109-113
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Heterozygous beta-thalassemia, the most common of the thalassemia syndromes, is often confused clinically with iron deficiency anema. The practical methods of differentiation between heterozygous beta-thalassemia and iron deficiency anemia are discussed; these include differentiating formulas, serum iron and iron binding capacity determinations, and hemoglobin electrophoresis. The case studies of heterozygous beta-thalassemia which were initially diagnosied as iron deficiency anemia are presented. Theoretical and practical aspects of the management of beta-thalassemia, including the use of alpha-tocopherols, are presented.
